Thank you Rebecca. No, you certainly weren't imagining things, it was purple. When I first started with Lifestyle I made a blue theme - I liked that, but it was too close to what is wanted for our Church website (next project). So I changed it to the purple; then recreated it on Genesis/Lifestyle. It was really odd, my friend could have been reading my mind, and just seemed to know the little details I was unsure about.
I'd been thinking of trying something with green as the predominant colour for a while. When the image came together as it did, I just had to go with the flow, while it was flowing.
Three times in a fortnight is a lot. I hope you've been able to use some of what you did in other projects, at least the ideas. But, I always think, if we can learn from what we do, nothing is wasted, even when it doesn't work out.
